“Pazhamudircholai-Arupadai Veedu Temple”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2013

Last month I visited Murgan Aarupadai veedu temples the trip was excellent and pleasant Aarupadai veedu temples one of the famous is Pazhamudircholai.It's located about 16 kilometres north of Madurai..On the top of the hill, there is a holy stream called "Nupura Gangai"The great Tamil poet and saint Avvaiyar had been tested by Lord Murugan here.Among the Arupadaiveedu, Pazhamudircholai is the last. This Lord Murugan at Pazhamudircholai is praised in old Tamil literature such as Silappathikaram, Ettuthokai and Pattupattu. Important events in Lord Muruga's history happened in these places.we had a best time ever with Sangham Tours.

Pazhamudircholai - is situated at hill near alagar kovil. once after visiting alagar kovil one can walk or travel in private vehicle or there is private TT charges rs10 for each person. Pazhamudircholai is rich in fruits, vegetables and flowers. It is a small temple with Valli, Deivayanai, and Lord Murugan in a separate shrine. about 600m up from the temple there is natural spring. lot of monkeys could be seen on road in temple and everywhere be careful with it.

“!!!Amazing Temple,Best experience!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2013

Pazhamudhir Solai is situated on a hill.it was the temple of lord kartikaya or lord murgan (in south Indian language).It is almost 4 km away from alagar kovil temple.
It is one of the six devsthnams of lord kartikaya (lord murgan).

When we reach there, we feel relaxing mind and very peaceful atmosphere.
there are some monkeys on the way,but it don't cause any problem, we went there by a taxi.

Another devsthnams of lord kartikaya was also situated in madurai .Lord kartikaya bhakt also visit there.

“Thrilling experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2013

This is one of sacred temples of Lord Muruga and is situated on the hill top above Alagar temple. Entrance fee for a car is 50rs. Distance should be 2-3km stretch. You will see so many monkeys throughout the road. Any eatables on your hand will be snatched within seconds by the monkeys. You will never know, from which side the monkeys would come towards you.

If you are going by walk, always have stick on your hand to protect your kids or ladies from the monkeys. Car would be safe, though dont bring down the window glass doors, cos monkeys will tend to jump inside the car. Just half a kilometer from the temple is a small falls which is considered to be equal to Ganga water. Do not leave your vehicle open, always have it fully closed.

“Beautiful temple”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2013

Visited the temple after visit to Azhagar Koil (see my other comment). It was a pleasant surprise after my visits to other temple, the queue was short, no pushing and shoving from the crowd and everyone was praying peacefully. Smallest of the 6 abodes of Lord Muruga, but definitely left us with positive experience.
